8 ft High Performance Parabolic Shielded Antenna, single-polarized, 7.750-8.500 GHz
Andrew Solutions shielded point-to-point microwave antennas deliver exceptional RF pattern performance and superior frequency control, all for a surprisingly low lifetime cost. A wide variety of configurations and capabilities provide network operators with the flexibility and control they need in today's evolving market.

Andrew Solutions designs and engineers a complete range of point-to-point microwave antennas that help operators to maximize bandwidth efficiency and increase system reliability while minimizing both capital and operational expenditures.

Equipped with a painted reflector and RF-absorbing shield, each antenna also features a low VSWR feed, a planar radome, and vertical pipe mount. All are engineered and tested to Andrew's uncompromising standards.

Radiation Pattern Envelopes-For each antenna model, Andrew publishes a complete range of radiation pattern envelopes (RPEs). Each detailed pattern envelope provides an easy-to-read and informative description of how the antenna performs at various frequencies and along specific planes. Copies of the RPEs for each antenna are also on file at various telecom regulatory offices around the world.
